What has this charity achieved?
Unfortunately this charity does not currently publish data on impact measurement.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

|When||Amount||Donor||To be used for|
|30/06/2016||£10,000||National Lottery Community Fund||The group will use the funding to set up an outreach service advising asylum seekers about the entitlement for children to register as British citizens. This will enable beneficiaries to access information about services and opportunities which improve their chances in life.|
|31/03/2016||£15,000||AB Charitable Trust||£15,000 towards legal advice and representation|
|29/02/2016||£60,000||Paul Hamlyn Foundation||This application is for the incubation of the Project for the Registration of Children as British Children (PRCBC) which is being hosted by Asylum Aid. PRCBC want to explore whether policy change relating to the registration of undocumented young people as British citizens can be secured by filtering out test cases which can be used in strategic litigation proceedings. A focus on strategic litigation has the potential to set precedent for other undocumented young people to register as citizens by remedying unlawful and poor practice. In addition, Asylum Aid will test whether hosting projects in early stages, can allow them to incubate and grow steadily before being established as independent entities.|
|11/07/2015||£50,000||Barrow Cadbury||To change Government policies to be more sensitive to the needs of vulnerable asylum seekers.|
